a CautionInappropriate modifications can cause damage. Never tamper with the boiler or other parts of the system.Never attempt to perform maintenance or re-pairs yourself.

- Do not damage or remove seals on components. Only authorised engineers or our customer service may re-moved sealed components.

d DangerRisk of scalding.The water coming out of the tap can be very hot (ecoTEC combination boiler only).

a CautionRisk of damage.Do not use sprays, solvents, chlorinated clean-ing agents, paint, adhesives or similar sub-stances in the vicinity of the appliance. These substances can cause corrosion, including in the flue system.

Installation and setting

a ImportantThe appliance must be installed and serviced by a competent person as stated in the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998. In IE, the installation must be in accordance with the current edition of I.S.813 ‘Domestic Gas Instal-lations’, the current Building Regulations and reference should be made to the current ETCI rules for electrical installation.

a CautionThe appliance may only be operated with its case properly and permanently closed. Otherwise, in unfavourable conditions, material damage or even injury or death can result.

Filling pressure of the heating systemRegularly check the filling pressure of the heating sys-tem (see 4.3.2).

Leaks (ecoTEC combination boiler only)If there is a leak in the water pipes between the appli-ance and the taps, immediately turn off the cold water service valve and have your engineer repair the leak.

Frost protectionYour boiler is equipped with a frost protection function:If the heating water temperature drops below 5 °C when the main switch is ON, then the boiler goes into opera-tion and heats the boiler circuit to approx. 30 °C.

h NoteIt cannot be guaranteed that water will circu-late throughout the entire heating system.

If the boiler is not operated for several hours during very cold weather there is therefore the possibility of the system freezing.Please ensure that if you are absent during a period of frost the central heating remains in operation and all rooms are kept above freezing point.It must be remembered, however, that the boiler will be automatically switched off by the built in monitoring de-vices if certain faults occur, e.g. interruption in the gas or electricity supply or faults in the flue gas system. To overcome this possibility you can drain both the central heating system and boiler.

h NoteFrost protection and monitoring devices can only function when the main switch of the unit is set to the “I” position and the boiler is con-nected to the electrical supply.

plus/exclusive pro

Fig. 4.9 Setting the water temperature

h NoteThis control adjusts the maximum domestic hot water temperature. If adjusting the control up-wards appears to have no effect on the temper-ature, then the boiler is already operating at full output for the selected flow rate.

When you adjust the required temperature, the set value is shown in the display (2). After five seconds the display returns to standard mode (the current heating flow temperature).

a CautionIf you live in a hard water area please do not set the control knob (3) above the mid (12 o’clock) position to prevent excessive scale formation.

4.5.2 Switching the warmstart function on and offThe warmstart system of the ecoTEC combination boil-ers provides you with hot water at the required temper-ature immediately. To do this, the hot water heat ex-changer of the ecoTEC is kept at a pre-selected temper-ature level and the boiler will therefore periodically op-erate to maintain this temperature.

ecoTEC plus and ecoTEC exclusive• Activate the warmstart system by briefly turning the

knob (1) all the way clockwise (position a).

Then select the desired hot water outlet temperature again, e.g. setting b (refer to Section 4.5.1). The appliance automatically adapts the hot holding temperature to the set hot water temperature. The tempered water is directly available at the taps; the symbol flashes in the display.• Switch off the warmstart system by briefly turning the

Fig. 4.15 Setting a room- or outside temperature controller

• Set the room thermostat (1) and/or the thermostatic radiator valves (2) according to the instructions sup-plied with the control(s).

h NoteVaillant offer room thermostat/time control ac-cessories which give accurate and economic room temperature control as well as improved comfort.

The boiler will now operate automatically to provide central heating for the conditions selected on the exter-nal controls (ecoTEC combination boilers will also pro-vide domestic hot water on demand). After the boiler stops operating the pump will continue to operate for a short period to fully disperse the heat from the boiler.

h NoteThe boiler incorporates an anti-cycling eco-nomiser control to prevent energy wasteful ON and OFF operation of the boiler for short periods when in the central heating mode. When turning the room thermostat to a higher setting there may therefore be a short delay before the boiler operates.

4.8 TroubleshootingIn the unlikely event that a problem occurs with the oper-ation of the ecoTEC boiler, the following points should be checked:

Boiler fails to operate:– Is the gas supply turned on (see 4.3.1)?– Is the water supply turned on (ecoTEC combination

boilers only, see 4.3.1)?– Is there enough water in the heating system (see 4.3.2)?– Is the electrical supply switched ON?– Is the main ON/OFF control in the “ON” position

(switch position “I”, see 4.4)?– Is there an ignition problem (see 4.8.2)?

Hot water operates but no central heating (ecoTEC combination boilers only)- Is the heating turned ON (see 4.6.1)?- Are all external heating controls ON (see 4.6.3)?

a CautionInappropriate modifications can cause damage.If your boiler still does not operate then please consult your installer or Vaillant Service Solu-tions (0870 6060 777).

4.8.1 Problems due to low system water pressureThe device switches to “Fault” if the water pressure in the heating system is too low. This malfunction is indi-cated by the fault code “F.22” (dry fire) or “F.23” or “F.24” (lack of water).You can only start up the appliance again when the heating system is sufficiently filled with water.

4.8.2 Ignition problemsIf the burner fails to ignite after five attempts, the de-vice does not start up and switches to “Fault”. This is in-dicated by the fault code “F.28” or “F.29” in the display. On ecoTEC plus appliances the display also shows the flame symbol with a cross through it (1). On ecoTEC pro appliances, the red LED (2) also lights up.

Automatic ignition can only take place after you manu-ally reset the fault.• To reset the fault, press the reset button (3) and hold

it down for one second.
